Bronx School Sued By Phys Ed Teacher For Discrimination As 10 Other Victims Named

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 4 – Steven Bernstein was a physical education teach at Middle School 390 in The Bronx until November 26, 2018, when he was constructively terminated. He says it was due to his age, and he sued. 

On November 4 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis J. Liman held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

   Bernstein blames principal Robert Mercedes, who he says pushed out several white and black older teachers like 64 year old Linda White, George Swander, Myrna Kinkle, Meaghan Canavan, Susan Carr-Lagomarsini, Eileen Kojes, Darryl McKnight, Juanita Murray, Harriet Harewood, and Claire Scenney-Lundahl, all named in the complaint. 

 The parties propose to complete discovery by December 21, 2020, requesting a post-discovery state conference on that day.

The case is Bernstein v. New York City Department Of Education, et al., 19-cv-11816 (Liman)
